As an Entrepreneur the road to building my businesses can feel endless at times. So when I launched JG Entertainment & Branding I made a commitment to myself to celebrate all my wins even the bite size ones. I believe that it is about celebrating every step of the journey. It has made the process of building the JG brand a fun and exciting one. Let’s all celebrate each other’s wins both small and big.
Branding:) At your next networking event ask the attendees to put their business card into a drawing and giveaway your branded product for FREE. You will get the crowd jumping for your brand, create a great buzz and expand your email list. It is a win win!
Premiere:) I have been looking for a company to develop my company website for over a year. The enclosed is what I knew I needed in order to help my brand expand its online presence: an amazing and dynamic looking website, a website that would be easy to manipulate and that I could maintain myself in regard to uploading pictures, blogs etc. a company that would help me with my online presence ranking. I got that with Etiquette Networks and so MUCH more. For instance as soon as I post a new blog in less than 24 hours I am already showing up on the Google Alerts search engine. My website is visually stunning and it is so easy to maintain. Please check out JoieGharrity.com and see for yourself. Dream Big!
*The number one goal of excellent networking is be willing and open to help other people.
*It is important to understand other people’s needs before you launch in telling people in a networking situation about your needs.
*Connect with people from a wide range of fields.
*Keep an open mind and be open to saying YES you never know who will be your next amazing networking connection.
One of my favorite movies of all time is Cabaret. Liza Minnelli plays Sally Bowles who is a sexy Kit Kat Girl set in 1931 Berlin. I fell in love with the Sally Bowles character because no matter how much everyone tried to change Sally’s eccentric and outlandish ways she always stood strong in her spotlight and let her unique light shine bright.
I have to remind myself DAILY to stand strong in my spotlight and call in my inner Sally Bowles. A key tool for me is my daily meditation. When I first started meditating a year ago I had no idea that taking twenty minutes out of my day would give me the courage and strength to stand strong in my spotlight! I am a huge fan of Summer Simonton’s Get What You Want guided meditation.
Let’s all make a commitment to standing in our spotlight and letting our light shine bright because life is truly a Cabaret.
At the entrance he signs the wall with a love letter to San Francisco.
As you walk into the exhibit you are immediately greeted with a dozen pieces of his spectacular couture fashion which is breathtaking.
He then pushes the creative envelope by adding modern technology to the exhibit. Pre-recorded human faces are projected onto the mannequins, it is as if the mannequins are alive. One of the mannequins even winked at me, I literally jumped.
I am always blown away by the creative expansion that artist like Jean Paul Gaultier explore and bring to life.
The power of being creative can move the human spirit and sometimes can even become a social movement.
Allow your creative spirit to expand and shine BRIGHT.
CHEERS to Jean Paul Gaultier.
A big part of my brand is spreading the word about the importance of standing in our Spotlight and allowing our light to shine bright. In my workshops I also talk about the difference between celebrating YOU and allowing your “ego” to define YOU. It can make the difference between thriving in your career vs having a Tom Cruise moment and killing your career. Check out this terrific article Get Over Yourself
